On Monday 27th February Cathy and Ken flew to Switzerland to have a few days break before she went back to work. They enjoyed their break together.
On Tuesday 28th Beth had an exploratory laparoscopy so I took her to the hospital and collected her later to come and stay with us. Fortunately everything was found to be normal, but the operation took a lot out of her. Piper was a good comfort to her as he instinctively knows when someone is not feeling well. It was good to have Beth with us and give her some TLC. Owen her lodger, bless him, looked after Chase for her whilst she recuperated with us. Chase would have been too much for her in her delicate state, as he is such a young dog, only 14 months old now. She returned to her home on the Friday, but her good friends from her church, Christ Church came to help with walking Chase, so Owen did not have to do it all.
On Thursday Brian, my prayer partner, came for our time of sharing and prayer, which is so helpful to us both. At that time, just at the time we were expecting, John Lewis delivered our new sofa and set it up and left with all the packaging extremely efficiently.
On Friday I was at the Acorn Centre helping students improve their confidence on computers, which I enjoy doing.
I relaxed in the evenings with my beloved watching DVDs and listening to music and enjoying television dramas and documentaries. On Saturday as Beth was still convalescing we walked Piper; she likes to take him for a longer walk with Chase.
